As our customers grew and delivery schedules became more demanding, the partnership seemed natural to meet the increasing challenges of a changing industry. Today the company is proud to employ over 145 people.  The company's proud tradition is being carried on by Bryan Kesting and Paul Gaines.   Bryan and Paul bring over 40 years of combined company experience. 

Generations of families have participated in our growth and success over the years.  Madison County Wood Products Inc. was born to become a major entity in the wood products industry, servicing the needs of its customers with quality products, competitive prices, and on time deliveries.
